The powerful legacy of classical education among Black intellectuals and educators in America is a national treasure with the capacity to bless teachers and students the world over. This rich heritage brings to light a wealth of truth, goodness, and beauty from within the great tradition. Through the work of many great readers, writers, teachers, artists, and people of action who loved, taught, and put into practice the wisdom and virtue of great guides such as Augustine of Hippo, while themselves living with injustices and hardships like we do, we have access to this rich heritage. Their insights shine a light into the heart of the Great Books and bring their gems before us with clarity and brilliance. This engagement of the Black intellectual tradition with the classics is a gift that we should bring to all students.
Our two presenters guide us into this exciting and timely topic with their own unique voices and professional backgrounds, exploring both the historical and scholarly foundations as well as the stories and experiences of both current and past teachers who have been champions of this heritage, providing inspiring ideas for action and application in all classical schools.
